My name is Rivers Morrell and after more than 40 years of experience with dog bite injuries in Southern California I can tell you it is important to seek the counsel of an experienced and proven injury attorney if your child is attacked by a dog and suffers injury. In my experience, negotiations with the insurance company pre-trial, and standing up to them at trial in the courtroom has brought successful conclusions for the family of those children who are injured by a dog bite attack and/or suffer Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after the fact.
Dog bite injuries leave more than physical scars. They can result in serious emotional scars as well, especially in children. Your personal injury settlement or verdict must not only cover all past, present and future medical expenses for your child, it must reflect the counseling and support needed now and in the future. Dog owners are strictly liable for the actions of their pets and their homeowners or renters insurance should cover all of these expenses as well as just compensation for your child having to endure injury and recovery.
For children who suffer severe injuries in a dog bite the odds of recovery are usually very strong, but it can be a long road.
